What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
DO YOUR HOMEWORK!! this is paramount to both Thales and the wider working world. If you turn up to an interview or assessment centre having done no research about the company you will find yourself wanting very early on. Also if you attend something similar purely for practise you will get 100% more out of it if you put some effort in. Just have a basic idea of what the company does and where you would fit in, for extra points if you can say why you want to join that always goes down well.
Do you have any interview tips?
There are 2 interviews along with the standard group and written exercises. The first will be a presentation and then a business interview. My best advice would be to follow the brief you are sent. then structure your presentation around it! then have some basic business competence and you'll be fine. The second is a competency based interview. Again if you can do some work on this before thats ideal, Also don't make something up if you don't have an example. The interviewers do this for a living and will sniff you out, be honest, If you don't have that experience they will ask another question.
